Mandy Hunt, chief underwriting officer for commercial lines at RSA, will be the new chair of the CII’s Society of Underwriting Professionals (SOUP).
Having joined the advisory board of the Society in 2019, Ms Hunt brings a wealth of underwriting experience and knowledge into the leadership position and is a long-time advocate of the CII and the importance of professional development and qualifications. Alongside SOUP non-executive director Phil Williams of Simply Business, she will lead the advisory board as it provides strategic guidance, content, learning and insight to the society’s 11,000 members.
Ms Hunt began her insurance career at Willis as an account handler in 1990, before moving to Lambert Fenchurch to become a claims manager. She joined RSA in 1998 as senior development underwriter, progressing through liability and property roles before becoming regional manager. She then took up the role of managing director of the Insurance Corporation of the Channel Islands (part of RSA Group), prior to taking her current role in 2018.
She replaces David Williams, managing director, underwriting and technical services at AXA, in the chair role.
